The Simple Gospel

“One of these days some simple soul will pick up the book of God, read it, and believe it.  Then the rest of us will be embarrassed.”

“God, if Jesus is alive… then how can my grandson be dead?”

About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?” 2Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. 3Then he said “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like the little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 10:1 [NKJV] : And when He called His twelve disciples to Him, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.

Galatians 3:3 [NLT]: How foolish can you be?  After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?

Amos 3:3 [NLT]: Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?

“It is impossible to walk down two paths at once”

Luke 2:41-44: 41His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast. 43When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know it; 44but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. 

Luke 2:45-48: 45So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.”

Luke 2:49-52 : 49And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” 50But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them.51Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. 52And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
